About Lynne McMenamin

“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up” – Pablo Picasso

I’ve always been interested in experimenting with watercolour and acrylic in order to paint the world around me.  A childhood spent in the country presented ample opportunities to observe and gain an understanding of birds and animals. 

Lino cut, wood cut and more recently Mokuhanga Japanese traditional wood block printing are also my passion.  All these techiques have allowed me to experiment with multi-colour, multi-block printing using different paint and paper. 

My wish is to create images that people enjoy.  The seeds of childhood have grown through a lot of hard work and kind encouragement from friends and family.

I have just opened an Etsy online shop where you are able to purchase and download digital files of my paintings and prints.
